Let us call for Peace this New Year for people who are living through extraordinary trials here in Eastern Congo. It’s a black hole where no-one is safe and where no outsider goes…

Every night there is another village attacked, burned and emptied. It could be the Mai-Mai – the traditional local militia, or the regular army, or the National Army for the Liberation of Uganda (ADF-NALU) based in Rwenzori mountain near Beni and Uganda Border, or deserters from any group, no-one knows…

But there is hope for change in 2010. The High Council of Defense reports improvement in the general stability and security. And we continue to work for peace, not through political or military power, but from within the communities.

Happy New Year 2010, I wish and grant you peace, contentment and good health through this New Year.
